Sweet Strawberry – 1 card 3 ways

The Sweet Strawberry Bundle is one of my favourite Stampin’ Up! products right now. They just screamed summer to me.

Today I wanted to show how one fabulous bundle can meet the needs of beginning stampers all the way up to avid stampers.

The first card uses just the Sweet Strawberry bundle, 4 inks and Basic White cardstock. The water painters were used to create a fun splatter but the same effect can be created using any wet paintbrush.

The second card adds in some different cardstock colours and some DSP.

Finally I added in some 3D embossing, die cut labels, heat embossing, cardstock layers, new kinds of adhesives and embellishments.

Which one is more your stamping style?

DAY 3 – STAMPIN THE RAINBOW

I will be live everyday this week ( Mar 14 – 20) at 10am (ish) to stamp with you. Each day I will be featuring a different colour and one great ordering special (see below). Today’s card is featuring the colours Crushed Curry and So Saffron, the Cute Fruit stamp set and the gorgeous Fine Art Floral DSP. I actually created 3 cards to show how we can step up our cards – go from simple stamping to slightly more avid.

The stamp set I am featuring is called Cute Fruit – it is found in the Beginner’s Brochure. The first card is just cardstock and ink – but I did use a masking technique ( you can watch the video below to see how).

To step it up I created the same card but added a DSP layer and some fussy cutting instead of masking.

Finally, we went a little bit further and added ribbon, embellishments and Dimensionals. Nothing too crazy – but all the small details make a huge difference.

Butterfly Brilliance – 1 card 3 ways

Today’s cards are all created using the not yet released Butterfly Brilliance Collection by Stampin’ Up!

Customers will be able to order this collection as of March 2nd (the stamp set and dies will be available in the new Annual Catalogue on May 3rd however; the DSP and Specialty paper are only available while supplies last from March 2 – April 30)

The first card I created was designed with a beginner stamper in mind. I used only 2 inks, 3 cardstocks and some glue. And yet the result is stunning.

To step it up a notch, I used essentially the same stamping, however, I stamped the butterfly twice and fussy cut it out. I embellished with twine and rhinestones and attached most pieces with my favourite adhesive – Dimensionals!!

Aside from the Butterfly Brilliance Collection, here are the supplies used to make this card. You can order the Butterfly Collection March 2nd, or add it to your starter kit today (**until Feb 28th you’ll even get 5 free DSP packs in addition to all the other perks of the kit**).


Basic White 8 1/2" X 11" Thick Cardstock

For my 3rd version of this card I took it up a few notches for the avid stamper. I used the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine to add detail to the Specialty Paper, cut a label out of DSP, and to cut the intricate butterfly. Of course, I topped it all off with a dash of Wink of Stella.

If you want to see the whole process in action you can view my video below ( please subscribe to my You Tube channel if you enjoy these videos – then you’ll never miss one!)

I am hosting a Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Camp with some other talented Canadian Demonstrators. You can see all the details of the camp here: https://stampinup.net/crm/events/91361
